Is The Nokia N8 Worth Buying?

The Nokia N8 is sure to lead the way in the constantly changing and evolving world of smartphones. Once used only for conversations, smartphones have introduced entertainment and functional abilities beyond imagination. Now complete media devices, cell phones are constantly undergoing change and improvement, so it is wise to purchase a smartphone that is ahead of the curve.

Because a good smartphone offers an array of abilities, it is vital that the screen enables the best viewing possible. This is more than capably accomplished with the N8's impressive 3.5-inch OLED touch screen display. Supporting more than 16 million colors, the screen displays wallpaper, pictures, video, and widgets more vibrantly than ever before. The colorful pictures are shot with a 12-megapixel camera. Even the most avid photographer can feel confident using the N8's picture taking capabilities that are comparable to those of high end point-and-click cameras. 16 GB of installed storage capable of expansion to 48 GB with a micro SD card should erase any fears of missing out on capturing a once-in-a-lifetime moment.

Videos are just as lively and are recorded in HD at 720p. The N8 comes equipped with an editing suite allowing the user to quickly and easily adapt the video to his needs. Because playback is one of the most important aspects of a device capable of video recording, the large screen offers more accurate response of playback controls than most touchscreens.

You've probably heard that there's an app for that, and this is certainly the case with the Nokia N8. Amongst the applications, you will find one dedicated to Web TV so that you never miss a news event or the latest Hollywood gossip. Sports and television shows are presented in Dolby Digital Plus surround sound. And the phone can be connected to a home theater system, presenting the video in unmatched sight and sound.

It is apparent that the N8 is an entertainment powerhouse, but its functional abilities surpass that of most smartphones on the market. The new Symbian^3 platform operates the device and innovations such as multi-touch and pinch-to-zoom are found on the powerful phone. Maintaining direction in unknown lands is easier than ever with free-for-life Ovi Maps downloadable at the Ovi Store. Best of all, these maps are supported in over 70 countries.

As smartphone technology has accelerated at a blinding rate, the Nokia has kept up and even set the pace with the brand new N8. There are no worries that this phone will be outdated as soon as you walk out the door.
